In the spirit of Thanksgiving, The Blended Blog is hosting a Monday linkup all about being thankful. Each week there is a different prompt and today is all about who and what we are thankful for. While my list could go on and on and on, here are a few of my favorites!
Marriage & This Guy!
Marriage is tough guys but I’m so thankful to have this guy by my side. I am not an easy girl to love day in and day out but he is in it to win it and definitely loves m well.
Motherhood & these crazies
I’m 100% positive God handpicked these 4 just for me. They challenge me, humor me and stress me out in ways I never imagined. Even when they are all picking out my faults and picking fun at my crazy, I know they all love me big too and it just makes my heart swell. This is seriously the last time I have any pictures of all 4 together (last October!!) but hopefully we will fix that very soon!
Family especially my mom and brother
For much of my life these two were the only ones I knew for sure had my back, loved me unconditionally and would be there for me in an instant if I needed them. I share it all with them and they have never turned their back on me!
Friendship and just a few of the ladies who make life more fun!
I mean y’all, any friend who will race armadillos with you is a keeper right? Holly and I met 16 years ago and, while we were not immediate best friends, at some point God put all the stars in line perfectly and made sure we ended up choosing each other! I couldn’t be more proud of the friendship we have created or the way we support each other from kids, to marriage, to faith we back each other up and know this is a safe place!
Kelli and I met 24 years ago as we both started jobs in the same office. I’ll never forget how excited I was when she walked in on her first day. I knew immediately she was going to be my friend! We have seen many struggles together in these 24 years and she has loved me with honesty and shown me how big Jesus can be without ever making me feel like a horrible human. She’s precious is all I can say….just look out if you are “one of those” drivers on the road because she becomes a whole different person!
And this little doll here? Well, Katy was my first real life blog friend who just happened to live right here in town. I had stalked her for years as we used the same photographer so I knew she was adorable but then I met her and realized how real she is and fell in love! I still consider this a “new” friendship as I feel like just when I think I know everything about her I learn something new. She definitely keeps me laughing and helps me decide important things like which Netflix series I should be watching!
My health and a gym family who holds me accountable
I’m so grateful for my health which allows me to continue to enjoy an active lifestyle. I love the way I feel when I am active but I’m not exactly self-motivated in this area so having a gym family who holds me accountable and calls me out when they don’t see me show up for awhile is huge for me.
This space and all of the readers!
I am grateful for this blog space. I’m not 100% sure where this space will continue to take me but if it all stopped today I am so grateful for the friendships it has created. When I share content from my heart if it touches just one other person it is 100% worth it! If I inspire just one person to create a new outfit that makes them feel confident it makes me so happy. With the thousands of amazing bloggers out there, I am so grateful any of you take the time to stop by and visit mine!
Now it’s your turn! Head over to The Blended Blog and linkup who and what you are thankful for!
